Now I am confident to talk to people in various real life situations. My language skills improved. The use of Roman transliteration for Hindi learning was helpful indeed; moreover user friendly resource has made the subject motivating and enjoyable to learn. I will surely suggest to someone I know, looking for Hindi lessons.

I took two day Hindi lessons to help learn certain phrases and words. The lessons were of great help and I also really enjoyed learning about Indian culture from Mrs. Subhadra Kothari’.

The Hindi lessons really helped us with navigating around Jaipur especially with the auto rickshaw drivers. It also helped with ordering food and shopping in the Pink city Jaipur.

My situation of limited time did not allow me to go far in learning but I could learn and practice enough. I would certainty enjoy and profit from a longer program. I would hesitantly advice anyone interested in learning Hindi, to take part in the study here.

The experience I got from the course was greatly enhanced by the one on one format. I was allowed to progress at my own pace and could work with an excellent instructor ‘Subhadra Kothari', whose subject knowledge and power of explanation is excellent. I was so impressed with teaching method that I visited India Jaipur to improve my conversational and grammatical skills in Hindi.

The basic course of Hindi learning is quite effective to understand the day today conversational expressions! Yes indeed, in a very short period of my stay in India Jaipur learning Hindi helped me to know about Indian culture and customs. 'Subhadra Kothari is incredibly nice. She is a Great teacher'

I had been coming to India almost every year since 2009 for volunteering. This time I decided to first learn Hindi, so that I become more comfortable to communicate effectively. After taking lessons in Hindi here in Jaipur, I was confident enough to speak and write in Hindi. My communicative skills enhanced due to my hard work and dedication. While teaching children English, I could translate and explain a story in Hindi. A great achievement!!!

I am doing Anthropology in German University and taking Hindi lessons as well. But here in a week's time took few lessons with Subhadra Kothari and all my queries were solved. I could learn a lot in this short period. She is a fantastic teacher. Hopefully I will come next year again to learn more advanced Hindi
Magdalena, Germany - March 2013

I am a Professional Tourist Guide, an International Event Planner and a Public Speaker, visited Jaipur in March 2013, to learn and speak Hindi. I am a multi linguistic - speaks several languages - English, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Greek and Egyptian Arabic and can understand several others! I am extremely passionate about learning Hindi andin my blog I write: ‘One thing I want to do before I die………….learn to speak Hindi’ I belong to the beautiful city of Montreal and being of Indian origin (Bengali) it was not difficult for me to understand Hindi, as Bengali and Hindi have similarities due to their Sanskrit origin. I am planning to visit Jaipur again to practice, listen and hear Hindi speaking local natives.
Ruby Roy, Montreal - Canada March 2013

I enjoyed learning Hindi reading and writing, during my stay in Jaipur. The structured worksheets and exercises helped me to learn step-by-step Hindi phonetics and grammar. I had a great experienceof volunteering for empowering adolescent girls and women in slums of Jaipur, where I could also communicate in Hindi with native speakers.

Myself, Andre and my wife Elisabeth got hold of the book 'HINDI Made Easy' from Universal Books, MI Road, Jaipur. I had been learning Hindi online since last few years. But I wanted to have tips on correct pronunciation and improve on conversational aspects in situations of daily life and to understand India's diversity, culture and its people. After taking 2 week's lessons in the month of January 2015 we could increased some vocabulary in Hindi, felt little confident to move around in Indian community and could understand Indian lifestyle through learning Hindi language.

Before coming to this Institute I had already been attending a few Hindi classes in Germany. Nevertheless the lessons at Jaipur de>initely helped me to improve my Hindi skills in all areas. I really feel that I have learnt more about Indian history, culture and lifestyles through learning the language. Though I could spare very little time in India but I could broaden my understanding regarding how Hindi has become ‘Hinglish’ and know the PersioArabic influence is affecting colloquial Hindi. My purpose for learning Hindi is to be able to converse with my Indian friends in their mother tongue or a language they know well. In my opinion the book ‘HINDI Made Easy’ is very handy guide for students, tourists, and volunteers who visit India and who need an introduction to that language.

Indian kitchen Craft offered me crash course in all Indian cuisines specially- Rajasthani, North Indian, South Indian and other foods like Punjabi etc. I could learn step-by-step cooking methods, with great chef Subhadra Kothari. The best part of it was - All cooking was ‘hands on’ and only the freshest quality ingredients were used. I loved to taste and eat what was prepared every day. I took 20 days lessons and skilled all popular varieties of culinary India! Such a Great and fun experience!!!
Erica Monteiro Diogo, Brazil - December 2011

The take away ‘Cook Book’ is excellent, which I did not expect. And the best part was at the end ----- when we eat what we made!!! Though I had only two day’s cooking lessons, as the same time I was learning Hindi and did volunteering in Jaipur, but I enjoyed my lessons knowing cooking tips and with some customized lessons as well.
Teddy Corwin USA - June 2013

After completing my volunteering schedule in India, I had four days cooking lessons in Institute of Indian cooking, here in Jaipur. Subhadra Kothari was incredibly nice, good time spent teaching now and then letting me do the chapati rolling, frying Veg Pakoras, making gravies, Indian sweets, paneer and so on…I was so impressed with everything about this experience. I totally recommend this.

We the group of 17 volunteers attended a very short duration course of ‘Dal and Roti’ making class in Jaipur. We love it!! It was very comprehensive, informative, ‘hand on’ and lots of fun. I am looking forward to try out my new culinary skills at home. To become super cook and learn how to make tasty and delicious dishes, we had lots of tips, live demonstrations, and accurate recipes. A group of seventeen persons from California, USA, learned creative cooking in August 2013. We all had a Great and fun experience!

Subhadra’s cooking classes have given me the inspiration to cook the food that I will enjoy all my life. In a week’s time, I had customized cooking lessons, where I learnt the delicacies of Indian food and spices. I thoroughly enjoyed the innovative dishes and several tips for healthy recipes, always followed by delicious lunch. Great!
